    Russia Warns Ukraine Against Recovering Oil Off The Coast Of Crimea

    Russia’s TV channel REN TV on Friday aired a video of an air strike drill on a decommissioned boat in the Black Sea to warn Ukraine against attempts to recover oil rigs off the coast of Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014.
    According to REN TV, Russia’s Black Sea fleet showed Ukraine what would happen to its fleet if it attacked oil rigs, adding that Russia’s forces showed Ukraine how groundless its claim was that smaller targets are difficult to strike.
    Ukraine’s UNIAN news outlet commented that this was “a blunt threat to apply the same force to the actual Ukrainian Navy warships once Kyiv attempts to regain control over its assets seized by Russia in the Black Sea as a result of Crimea occupation or attack vessels under the Russian flag.”

    I have seen it used that way in history books, but you are probably right about popular perception, I have no doubt they picked that word because it could be interpreted by the public as a synonym of "stole".

    No, I only need it to match one definition of the word, also those definitions include instances of force, they do not specify the method of appending, attaching or incorporating the smaller thing to the larger.
